Our graduate program continues to attract and place outstanding researchers who will shape Sociological discourse around the world. Along with the Population Research Center the Sociology department provides both rigorous training for social scientists and a remarkable quality of life in Austin.This blog seeks to spark discussion and highlight the research being done by our talented students and faculty.
An outstanding quality of life is something UT Austin is known for, with world class art and literary collections at the Harry Ransom Center and The Blanton Museum of Art sharing public space with local artists. Sociologists at UT enjoy unique opportunities for research both in the US and abroad. Even in Austin, people watching is a favorite sport. We are serious scholars, producing excellent research while enjoying our creative, vibrant town.
